The release of Prince Harry's memoir 'Spare' will include his thoughts on the tragic death of his mother Princess Diana.

Penguin Random House, the publisher of the impending memoir including a description of the book, which said: “Spare takes readers immediately back to one of the most searing images of the 20th Century.

"Two young boys, two princes, walking behind their mother's coffin as the world watched in sorrow – and horror.

“As Diana, Princess of Wales, was laid to rest, billions wondered what the princes must be thinking and feeling – and how their lives would play out from that point on. For Harry, this is his story at last.”

Ms Maclaran, author of the book Royal Fever, was particularly damning of the description as she said: "Using Diana's death as a taster doesn't sound particularly good", and added that the Royal Family “are going to be upset by the contents”.

She said: “I think the book will be a crucial part of him creating this relatable image. To make him seem like everyone else.

"It is obviously a gamble he is willing to take. I think it's very much a gamble because I think it's bound to upset members of the Royal Family.

"First of all, even if he's not criticising them – and I think we all fully expect he will be – he is still pouring his heart out in a way that is not usually regarded as very royal, and against the Queen's mantra to always keep silent.

“Members of the Royal Family are going to be upset by the contents. I think they have to be, really.

“It will be really difficult for William, Harry is stealing the limelight, possibly, over their mother's death. William suffered very acutely as well.”

Despite criticisms over the content of his book, a source said Harry reportedly has "no regrets" about what he included, as he found it "cathartic" to let loose on the "traumatic" nature of his childhood.

The source added that Harry reportedly found it troublesome to "recount certain traumatic events from his childhood".

The Daily Star has approached the Duke of Sussex for comment.
